Gorgeous 1940s rayon novelty. Archers and troikas and fishing nets. Or are those ski lifts and butterfly nets? Oh, who could tell. 40s style psychedelic. Think Adolous Huxley opening the Doors of Perception. Think Maya Deren crawling down a long table at a fancy dinner party. Just look at those conical hats. Plum, lavender and mustard--I've never seen that color combo before. Nice medium size (B43, W32) and the current bid is only $19.99. It may be a bit faded, but a wild print like that can hold it together regardless. Do go look at it, as the photo I have posted somehow mysteriously shrunk.

The winds of change are blowing through my life, goslings. I hope to be back with a new novelty print by next Tuesday, but it might take a few days to get connected after my move.

Meanwhile, do go and see this excellent exhibit, if you are in the NY area: "Ehon: the Artist and the Book in Japan" at the New York Public Library. Mind-bendingly detailed manuscripts and hand block prints from the Library's collection.
